Awesome Thursday night at the Quindanning Hotel on 15th Jan 2009, the weather was warm and the mood was right. A few chilled ales, punters relaxing in the beer garden to a bush sunset, a perfect canvas to lay down some sweet acoustic action. Also playing that night was the young band Bonjah who’s grooves really hit the sweet spot and I got to say I really enjoyed them.
Glenn Mossop on Vocals with a distinctive, inviting and charismatic style , the echo and crack of timbales from percussionist James Majernik, the deep sub bass tones of bass player David Morgan and the clean tones of a reggefied stratocaster hitting those punctuations right on time by Regan Lethbridge.
Now remember this is a Thursday night but in Quindanning that’s a different story. Talking to Rowan the manager it seems Thursday nights is the go for these parts of the woods and not to be underestimated, I swear the party was going to the wee hours of the morning and with very little let up in site.
As I awoke (if I slept at all) I could hear a fellow in another room adamantly saying to his mate, “Hey man, wake up, you got to go to work, wake up man, you got to go to work!”.
I think that about sums it up 🙂
Yeh, there were a few headaches that morning but I reckon what the hell, this is the Quindanning, one of the best gigs in the country and definitely one of my favorites.
